# of CPE Credits



This course is No. 2 in the Microsoft® Power BI® series of webinars. Before you can analyze data, you first must get the data. This course focuses on getting data into a data model and then working with that data. Attendees will learn the importance of having data in a data model versus in a spreadsheet. We will introduce some of the basic features of Power Query (or Get and Transform in Excel® 2016) and how it removes many of the roadblocks to getting data. You will learn how you can eliminate the use of the resource sucking VLOOKUP function by using the efficient Relationship feature. After this class, you will finally be able to get the data you need to perform data analysis. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event, and the instructor will be available to answer your questions either during or after the event.


After attending this presentation, you will * Have a complete understanding of proper data structure * Obtain the skills to set up imports from various data sources * Reduce your need for manually entering data into Excel®


The major topics that will be covered in this class include * Getting data into the correct structure * Data sources that you can access * Working with multiple tables and data sources * Steps to import data for analysis * Introduction to Power Query and Get and Transform * This course is No. 2 in the Microsoft Power BI® series of webinars
